Journal Entry:
Got up reasonably early feeling much better. Spent the morning wandering around Old Akko. Not only does Akko have the charm that has been crowded out of Jerusalem, but it's also a real place, where real people live. The souqs (markets) even have things like fish and meat and vegitables, not just the endless collection of the same souvineer crap. Unfortunately since it's Friday I was unable to go in the Mosque.

Caught an afternoon bus to Haifa, and from there another one to Tiberias. It is hot in Tiberias (easily lower 90's). Spent the afternoon exploring (and lounging around) the waterfront. The Sea of Galilee is actually a bit of a disappointment, the water isa horrible opaque brown (nice thought that this is where Israel's drinking water comes from). Read through the evening until the bugs got to bad (real bad, like Alaska bad).
